Why Hunters chose to offer flatfair

Hunters Blog Header (1)

After extensive evaluation of other deposit alternatives on the market, Hunters began their partnership with us back
in 2019, offering flatfair No Deposit across 89 branches.

Hunters Lettings Director, Becki Clarke, said this about their decision:

“When looking at deposit alternative services Hunters favoured flatfair over other offerings because they provide
a deposit alternative which is transparent for our customers, easy to use and offers a good service to both tenants
and landlords.”

With Hunters being one of the largest independent networks of lettings agents in the UK, with branches spanning from
Carlisle to London, we have been able to join forces and benefit thousands of their customers up and down the country.

How their tenants have benefitted

By replacing a traditional deposit with a one-off membership fee of one weeks’ rent (+VAT), so far,
Hunters have saved their tenants a total of £447,381 in up front move-in costs.

That means on average Hunter’s tenants have saved £634 each. That’s heaps of money and will go a long
way to help them with the upfront cost of moving house, and they could even put it towards the more exciting things in
life, like a holiday, a shopping spree, or to make their new house a home.

Although tenants are just as liable for end of tenancy charges as a traditional deposit, our work with Hunters shows
that No Deposit not only keeps move-in costs low, but helps tenants to save money throughout the entire
renting process. Only 33% of Hunter’s tenancies with flatfair end in charges. And for those with
charges, the average amount totals just £81.60 each, so Hunters have seen vastly improved tenant
behaviour. Which means less stress for everyone, when the time comes for tenants to move out.

Seeing much improved tenant behaviour makes life a lot easier for their landlords at the end of tenancy. But on the
occasions where things may go wrong, flatfair have already provided a total protection of £1,137,669
for accidental damage and/or rent arrears.

50% of Hunters landlords choose to rent their properties with flatfair No Deposit, this
figure has risen by almost 25% this year alone, all benefiting from market-leading protection of up to 10
weeks

With stats like these, we can see why our partnership together is only going from strength to strength, and
Georgina Spence, Lettings Manager at Hunters is confident that…

flatfair ensures our landlord’s have the best protection in place.
